Live blogging from CALICO: The Use E-portfolios in the Language Classroom: Rationale and Implementation

Barbara Lafford, Peter Lafford and Michelle Petersen, Arizona State University

Wow…this presentation was chock-a-block with information about types of eportfolios, definitions, purposes, types of “artifacts” to be collected and selected, assessment….thankfully they had an extensive handout. I will fill in the blanks this evening over a refreshing beverage 🙂

Great quote: “We do not learn from experience. We learn from reflecting on experience” John Dewey

June 3 update: Am hoping to get the Lafford’s ppt presentation and upload it here…I could not do their work justice by paraphrasing it here…

Barbara is a Lecturer in Hispanic Studies at a small liberal arts college in Maine. Rumor has it this was also her alma mater. She used to work for a small liberal arts college in the cornfields of Ohio for almost 20 years as a teacher and language center director. Prior to these adventures in higher ed she taught high school Spanish and loved it. She wishes she had more time in her life to play with her dogs, write, read, swim, do yoga things and making stuff out of clay. To see her online portfolio please click here!
